If I choose to end my life at a time of my choosing I hope I have the decency to not leave a burden for others. That is an imposition. But that is a wholly separate question from the choice of whether to continue my life.

see post #108 (Z's post) re: point to be made about guns.

I'm not from Oregon either and I have no problem with assisted suicide either, provided that it is a responsible one, for the same reason you state. It is in my will that I opt out of life support.

Good, then we are in agreement -- suicide is a personal choice.

So what we have a problem is, which tool is appropriate?

(Sorry about the Oregon thing. I thought it wuz you from OR. maybe it was Lebenz, from the olden days before the mass execution and exodus from the old country).

The biggest problems we are facing right now have to do with George Bush trying to bring more and more power into the executive branch and not go through Congress at all and thatís what I intend to reverse.
